    Does anyone use anything like this? I wanted to get one for our Camry, because it's lucky if it's driven every few months (and I know it has some sort of very low parasitic drain). I have no interest in trying to track it down. Then, I was thinking, maybe one for the Passat would be nice too...

    Yo there. Yesterday I was getting back from the grocery when my IDLE became pretty rough. The engine didn't stall but it was amazing how nuts the RPM gauge on the cluster performed. I pulled over for a moment and when I tried to get back to the street the car was completely out for power. As...

    ElsaWin say to disconnect the battery to do this. This seems like it should not be needed for this. Service data cites relay marked '373' as the SAIP relay. I see the unit. Why can't I unplug it with key off if it only runs the SAIP?

    i'm putting my 04 passat GLS into service mode and i think i'm down to the very last thing that needs to be disconnected... i can see the green plug (looks like an inline fuse holder) which is sort of zip-tied to another hose (or cable harness) so it's hard to manipulate with the limited...

The procedure described via the PassatWorld thread calls for disconnecting the Batt ground and using a supplemental voltage device during the procedure. For various other work procedures, I have noticed some...

    So my ABS module has been out of sorts for quite awhile now, flashing brake light and abs lights, you know... I'm going to attempt to remove the module and get the silver wires re-soldered like it says to try on so many forums and videos. If this does not fix the issue is there a way to just...

    So I'm troubleshooting some door speaker and lock issues. I've got the molex connectors separated. How do I disconnect a specific wire from the "door" side (versus the pillar side) of the connector? Are the blue and purple slides wire locks, to hold the wire in? Thanks!

    I preparing to remove a 1.8t engine out of a Passat. My Haynes manual says to discharge the A/C so that it can later be disconnected. However, I saw a video of someone putting the front end in service mode and just twisting the A/C condenser (radiator) to the side. Is it possible to...

    I've been fighting a coolant loss problem for quite a bit. part of it was the return line on the heater core, which I have since fixed (two weekends ago) using this Info Base thread - no leaks there, as far as I can tell. however, it appears there may be yet another leak... this is on a 99 B5...

    I've taken the rear calipers off to replace pads with the e-brake cable still attached. Piece of cake. I'd like to disconnect the cable from the caliper temporarily so that I can torque the upper caliper bolt properly (without having to use a crow's foot, which isn't easy to do in the wheel...

    The driver side OEM tweeter of my 2001.5 B5 Passat is blown and instead of paying the money to replace it, I would just like to disconnect it. What is the easiest way to do this? I'm a noob and don't have much experiencing handling car electronics. Thank you. BTW, yes I posted a thread...
